Printing Policy

Current Students

 

A current StormCard (TCC ID) is required. If you do not have your TCC ID or are not enrolled in the current semester, follow the instructions for Community Patrons.Students may continue to keep their StormCard plan active even if no longer enrolled. The plan only expires if the account has no activity for one year. Students not enrolled may continue to use their StormCard plan to print as long the plan is active on their TCC ID.

  • StormCards are loaded each semester with 100 pages, and that amount does not "roll over" to the next semester.
  • After 100 pages, students must pay 5 cents a page to print.
  • Students must deposit a minimum of one dollar when adding money to their StormCard.
  • Students can check the "balance" of their card at self-service stations available at the reference desks in the library.
  • Don't hesitate to ask a library staff member to assist you with loading money on to your StormCard or checking your current balance.

 

Students: How To Print:

  • If you do not have enough funds on your card, more money can be deposited using the StormCard Manager site, a StormPort (cash-to-card machine), or the Business Office.

    Community Patrons:

 

  • A Total Convenience Card is required and this can be purchased for one dollar at the StormPort machine in the library.
  • Cards can be purchased for $1.00 from the StormPort near the copy machines and print charges are an additional $.05 per page. Community patrons must load at least one dollar on to their cards.
  • Community Patrons can check their balance by inserting their Convenience Card into the StormPort machine.  The display will show the current balance and the patron may cancel the transaction if no deposit action is desired.
  • Please don't hesitate to ask a library staff member to assist you with loading money on to your StormCard or checking your current balance.
